[video clip] >> the appropriators have a tough job over the last couple of years. they have taken a lot of tough votes in their committee. so i understand the frustration that they are dealing with. but i just want to make clear -- the sequestration is going to remain in effect until the president agrees to cut some toorms that will allow us remove it. the president insisted on the sequester, and none of us wanted, none of us like it. there are smarter ways to cut spending. the house has moved twice over the last year and a half to replace the sequester. we saw no action in the united states senate. so if they want the sequester to go, we will have to get serious about our long

these started. 1980. 1981. peak years of the cold war. right? when the u.s. and the soviet union were trying to divide the world between them and us. everybody expanding their spheres of influence. right? the u.s. and the "u.s.s. r." pressuring other countries in the world to aly with the west or ally with the east. cementing military ties for the west in egypt, egypt which has the biggest population in the middle east, in many ways the strongest arab nation, yeah, that was reward for them signing a peace treaty with israel and also a way to keep them in the west, on our side of the big game. now even today the egyptian military uses tanks built by general dynamics. they fly boeing apache attack helicopters. their fighter jet pilots fly lockheed martin f-16s. and every two years since the early 1980s, these giant war games, these giant fake wars in egypt, they further cement the military relationships between egypt and the west. they cement the interoperability of egypt's troops with american troops. and now all the other countries that participate or that formally observe those war games, t
mayor bloomberg and get his reaction of the judge's ruling. we want to get to pete williams joining us from the news room. a judge made the ruling on the controversial stop and frisk tactics. what exactly was that ruling? what did we learn today? >> she's not ordered the city to stop doing the program. she ordered them to change how they do it. she said it's racially profiling the people they stop. the majority of the folks they stop are either latino or african-american. she says it's simply racial profiling. it's over representing people and you can't do that. it's not looking at suspicious paper, it's not random. it is profiling. she wants to look at the program to make sure the city makes changes, gather more data in selected precincts to wear body cameras when they do stop and frisks so courts can get a better idea of how it works. itis not a finding that the entire program is unconstitutional and the city has to stop it, it's instead an order to change it. peter, i would be surprised if the city doesn't appeal. >> give us a sense. what is the expected reaction aside from the appe

if president obama decides to strike syria and top u.s. officials say those strikes could start as soon as thursday and will send a definitive message to assad. with syrian ally russia wheeling power on the veto council, this might happen without a u.n. mandate. it's happened before, like the 1999 nato op in the former youk slav ya. the u.s. has four naval destroyers in the mediterranean. so far, they have no orders to prepare for action. doctors without borders puts the death toll from last week's poison gas attack over 350 with 3600 injured. p u.n. inspectors were kept out today because of security concerns, this amid new reports that assad forces launched a separate chemical attack money in aleppo, allegedly usining napalm. ayman, i want to the start by getting your response to something jay carney said today about the options they are considering in terms of a strike in syria. >> the options that we are considering are not about regime change. they are about responding to a clear violation of an international standard that prohibits the use of chemical weapons. >> so ayman, if we do

on around the world. topping that list is syria. it appears the u.s. is moving closer to a military strike on syria. this morning, british prime minister david cameron said britain will offer a resolution at the u.n. security council condemning the chem wall weapons attack and vice president joe biden using some of the strongest language yet at an event yesterday. >> there's no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. the president believes and i believe that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women, and children should and must be held accountable. >> nbc chief foreign correspondent richard engel is in turkey near the border of syria. are they talking about a military strike there? >> reporter: they certainly are and turkey would be a willing participant in this. turkey said it's willing to pay any price to see bashar al assad go. the question now is what is the role of the u.n. and the u.n. investigators? today in damascudamascus, the t from the u.n. left their hotel after a 24-hour delay. they went to the suburbs
